Miquel Navarro Educational Workshop “Una urbe en tus manos “

Academic year 2014 - 2015


The installation of Miquel Navarro “Una urbe en tus manos” is composed of hundreds of small gray aluminum parts distributed over 50 m2 that make up a city in which the participants are expected to freely create their own. It is a game that invites them to reshape and transform the space, moving the pieces from their site, placing them differently each time through the established perimeter.

In this city there are pieces with different shapes: cubic, conic, prismatic … The objective is, apart from the playful aspect, to make them discover the city, and develop their imagination to create their own vision of the city: horizontality, verticality, shape, structure … in essence, to project the vision of how they think and imagine the city.

The installation is designed with an educational purpose, the process of construction and de-construction is a fundamental premise in this piece-installation in which participants will build their imagined city.

This educational project welcomes all kinds of public, although it is designed essentially for children aged 5 to 12. As a complement to the activity of the group, every participant will be able to design and to construct his own project of city at an individual level. On a cardboard that will be the base, geometric recortable pieces of different sizes and forms will be able to be adhered and that will be able to be colored later to distribute them on this space in an spontaneous form.

This activity will help to develop the creativity and artistic talent of the participants while civic notions of cooperation and respect for others, and the affirmation of one’s personality in a context of freedom and tolerance are reinforced.
